Colt Combat Elite in .38 Super???

Got a Colt Combat Elite in .38 Super. Never heard of one, and would like to know if anyone has heard of a limited run or if this is a fluke. Has the Eliason sight and the slide reads "Combat Elite" but has the breech face for a .38 super. The slide does not have a caliber marking, just the barrel. It is two tone with the stainless frame and blued slide. Any thoughts?

Yep, heard of them. In the late 80's this was a popular gun to build a comp gun on, because the 2 tone look was the thing in IPSC at the time.
Most people just bought a Wilson LE-K comp kit, installed a beavertail, Wilson mag well, did some checkering and were ready to rock. I knew a guy who shot one in .45 acp, then had one built in super.

Not no fluke, but it didn't go for a real long time (maybe 1987 to 1989)

To the best of my knowledge, this was not a limited run, but instead, an optional caliber in the Combat Elite's. I won't go so far as to say they were a huge seller, but have seen several over the years. Good gun, enjoy!
